Inventory Inquiry (Aggregate)
This API allows the user to request the aggregate inventory information of an item or items that belong to a particular manufacturer. This does not separate inventory by location, instead providing the total inventory count across all locations.
Note that unlike other OMS APIs, there are two endpoints that may be used. Each endpoint is associated with a different API key related to a package – either an “Inventory V5” or “Inventory Specific” package. The Inventory Specific package is the preferred endpoint to use, but some implementations may use Inventory V5 depending on their configuration.
|Call – Inventory V5||https://integration.shopatron.com/api/v5/inventory/aggregate|
